Satyricon Announce Final United States Tour
It's been a horrible day for band finality, as Satyricon have announced their final U.S. tour. The black metal duo have been veterans of the genre since 1992, responsible for releasing nine full-length albums and a variety of other releases. To this day, their career has been responsible for excellent albums, with their most recent Deep Calleth Upon Deep making it on our 2017 Best Metal Albums of the Year list.
"As our U.S fans will have noticed, we haven't toured there in nine years," says Satyr. "There are many reasons for that. I like America and I like Americans, but unfortunately touring there has been a difficult chapter in the history of Satyricon. I can't guarantee what the future holds, but we did not go on the last record, so I am hoping that one final headlining tour can be a good way of sharing some electric musical moments with our U.S fans, whom we love just as much as all our other fans across the world.
This spring, they'll be embarking on their final U.S. tour, alongside modern black metal greats Inquisition, and Panzerfaust. The tour gets going in mid-May in Los Angeles, Calif. and ends May 30 in Austin, Texas. The run includes a headlining stop at this year's edition of Maryland Death fest.
It's unknown whether this spells the total end of Satyricon or just touring in United States, but this looks to be the last time for U.S. fans to catch the band. Check out tour dates below.
